Title: Looking for Alaska
Author: John Green
Stars (out of 5): 3
Review: I was really excited during the beginning of the book. I loved the idea of Miles going off to boarding school in search of the “Great Perhaps”. However, I couldn’t help but feel as if the characters and the plot were really forced on me, as if John Green REALLY REALLY wanted to make sure we knew exactly what the characters were feeling. The story and characters were powerful enough on their own, and would have made a bigger impact if it hadn’t been dragged out so long.
